One Bowl Chocolate Brownies (or Brownie Cookies)
Technically, this recipe is to make Brownie Cookies, but I like to make a whole pan of brownies. I love an ooey gooey brownie, ya know, the inside part of the pan of brownies. I do not want the crisper outside pieces, no siree.
This recipe is my mom’s and the name “One Bowl” makes me chuckle because I have always made “one bowl” brownies because I love box mix brownies and, up until recent times, was quite content to make those when I wanted to make brownies. Why reinvent the wheel?
But I am working on a large project of testing recipes and gathering a collection of my “go-to” homemade foods because now that my last child is growing and I can put more energy into my cooking/baking hobby, I find it frustrating to need a basic food recipe when I need to make something and then not like the result. Ya know, cakes, cookies, brownies, gravy, meatloaf, mac and cheese etc. The kitchen staples.
So, I am on a brownie kick right now because brownies just say, “Super Bowl” to me.
These brownies are moist and delicious. I have tried them with bittersweet chocolate and they have a little too much depth for me so I prefer them with semi-sweet chocolate, but you’re a grownup and can decide for yourself what chocolate makes you happy.
(I also tried a family recipe for brownies made with a biscuit mix and was hoping to give you some brownie options in this post, but they were yucky and not “worth the points” so I threw them out. I always cringe to throw out food, for obvious reasons, but in the end, I figure it is better than us eating junk that we do not need. But it still makes me cringe.)
Without further ado, here are some fabulous homemade brownies for your Super Bowl needs, or any other brownie need.
We used them as a birthday treat because January is loaded with birthdays in our house and we get tired of cake.
Really, we do.
